HELP, corrupted tar tape
I have a tar tape that contains some important data that I need. When I try to extract the tape I get:
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
The tape is a DAT 12/24. The error occurs after about 9.3gb of data. I am sure that the data got written to the tape as there where no errors when I wrote it. I dont think the tape is running out as only 9.3gb has been extracted and the tape has an uncompressed capacity of 12gb.
I have tried an extraction with the --ignore-failed-read switch set but this did not work.
I would like to find a way of skipping the damaged file in the archive and get the ones after it.
Thanks for any help
